A unique approach to help students understand the writing process and get them excited about writing!
One part literature, the engaging stories will delight children, another part instructional resource. The main character, Stella, is a feisty, intelligent second grader who takes on writing tasks with confidence, employs many useful strategies, and perseveres through the tough parts to get to the writing joy. She's fun. And her stories about writing are fun; even with increased rigor, writing should be fun and purposeful for children. Stella's a powerful mentor and will be a true inspiration for your students.
Do you know what it's like to be inquisitive? To have your mind racing with questions? Stella does!
